Today i was buying feeder fish for my needle fish. and she dropped all five of them on the dirty floor. And started Pinching them to pick the up. needless to say i said " you just injured every fish im was going to buy, I want different ones instead of these injured ones" She grunted at me dumped them back in the tank and started scooping up dead ones. and put them in the Container. I said "do you own any fish" she responded "no" and i said then what make you qualified to work in the fish department killing off your company's and handing out terrible advice to other pet owners. She ignored me and stomped off. I hate petsmart. they try to treat me as an inexperienced retard child buying my first fish.

Honestly I'd really be raising my own feeders. I wouldn't trust anything out of any fish store's feeder tank.

I'm sorry that they treated you so badly. My Petsmart would never treat customers like that.

The best advice ever. The fish those type of stores are selling have never been quarantined and I'm sure they are riddled with who knows what...ich, fungus, etc.
It's easier price-wise & time-wise to set up a smaller tank to breed your own feeders and not risk losing the fish you are feeding!

Do what I did for my QT tank, use a spare rubbermaid tub. A sponge filter, simple heater, cheap light, some gravel for the bottom, cheap clay pots and plastic plants. Maybe add in some real java fern or moss for the youngin's. Toss in two or three males along with six to ten females and let nature take its course.
